Zoom Gatherings

Sacred Web Vancouver Zoom

During Covid, we have been gathering on Zoom.  We hold one gathering per month from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm and people sometimes visit until 4:00 pm.  Please see our calendar for dates and links.  We invite individuals to join as our guest for their first time for free.  If you plan on coming, please be in touch with our director (director@sacredwebsingers.ca) so she knows to admit you to the gathering.

 

Gathering In-Person

Once Covid is over and we are able to gather in-person again, typically we meet once per month in the afternoon from September through June and usually on the third Sunday of each month.  In months when there is a 5th Sunday, we hold a second gathering.

While we do learn music and practice songs at Sacred Web Singers’ gatherings, our practices take us further-in to singing.  Each gathering has a theme, and a centerpiece and ritual surrounding the theme, which help us to go deeper in our connection to self, to the music, and to the meaning that is shared in the songs.  The 5- to 10-minute ritual usually includes a reflective reading.  We also share refreshments and finger-food afterwards, which gives us time to deepen our connections with each other.

 

Seasons, Socials and Singing

We have a Winter Season gathering at a member’s home, and a Summer Social as well.  We also hold a 2-night retreat every 2 years at the Edenvale Retreat Centre in Abbotsford.

SWS Concert: A Sharing Event

In lieu of an in-person Sharing Event this year,
we’re excited to say we shall be sharing our June 20, 2021 event on Zoom SWS!

Please check back for more information.

Sharing Events are informal concerts where the audience and singers sit in circle formation and everyone may sing along.  Our families, friends, and the public are invited to come sing with us and share meaningful songs.  Refreshments are served afterwards and CDs are for sale as well.

Other Events

The Sacred Web Singers lend their voices in support of community events whose purpose is social, environmental, economic, gender justice, and fostering peace.  We have sung at conferences, memorial services, worship services, weddings, celebrations, at the Rivendell Retreat Centre’s events, and at local events that support social justice causes and/or peace.
